About La Spaghettata

It’s easy to see why La Spaghettata on Lygon Street in the heart of Carlton is one of Melbourne’s most loved Italian restaurants. All dining elements combine in an authentic casual ambience of antique heirlooms and an intimate courtyard setting, with rows of wine bottles on shelves and a balcony area ideal for after-work drinks with friends. From a menu with traditional ingredients and recipes going back generations, expect to see dishes like Mama’s arancini with Bolognese and mozzarella; before pasta plates of linguine with scampi, garlic, tomato, parsley and olive oil. Perhaps veal scaloppine, tomato sauce, white wine, olives, peppers, capers and onion entice, or a slice a knife into perfectly cooked eye fillet steak, with mushroom sauce and sides of rosemary potatoes and rocket salad.
